George Clooney: “These are unusual times, particularly unusual for the people of Armenia”

On October 19, 2020, despite the challenges caused by the global pandemic and the heartbreaking military aggression in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the first event of Aurora’s “Gratitude in Action” anniversary series took place in New York City, honoring the Aurora Prize Laureates and Humanitarians and the Initiative’s 5th anniversary.

George Clooney, Honorary Co-Chair of the Aurora Prize Selection Committee, shared a powerful message at the “Gratitude in Action” event:

"These are unusual times, particularly unusual for the people of Armenia. We hope and pray for peace as quickly and as soon as possible. It is foremost on all of our minds. It has been an honor for me to have been, from the very beginning, part of this Aurora Prize with Elie Wiesel, the late great Elie."
